CNN-Isha Sesay: Disrespecful To Nigerian President by Igwe12: 7:56pm On Nov 25, 2010
I used to like this girl in CNN and was proud of how far and high she has climbed in the Cooperate ladder as a black woman. However, after viewing her interview with President Jonathan, i have lost all respect for her. WHO does she think she is?? To address a sitting President this way, ?? Even her body language shows tremondous condescension and her tone almost rude. Will she have the fear to address President Obama this way or any other president this way for that matter Even if you do not agree with President Jonathan, he is still a sitting President and as such deserves respect ,,  and especially from an African Girl from seirra Leon whose mom should have thought better about respecting their Elders,  She should never be given access to any other top politician in Nigeria period.  If she talks to a Nigerian President this way, i just wonder the respect she has for all Nigerians like us,

The Interview from You tube.

Well, let not forget that the way interview are conducted in Nigeria are far different from the west. the journalist are taught to probe abd dig for answers and in some cases that might come off aggressive. I dont think Isha meant any harm.

GEJ was ok, but still very far off from an effective / established campaigner.

i seriously don't get how she was rude undecided. she asked perfectly valid questions. it is this same type of questions we should be asking instead of protecting him so that he can be the president by force.

This is not a question of asking the right questions because she did and i applaud her. But she could have shown more respect in her bod language. If this was hardtalk, it will be a different thing because that is how that show is meant to be. But this is just Sesay, a junior journalist, not even Wolf Blitzer or Bill oreilly in this context. Yes, Jonathan needs to step up his game big time especially if he is going to be representing 150milion nigerians in the world stage, but that does not give that girl the odacity to sound and display an aura of dismissal and condescension to a sitting President. I don't like Obj, but this girl will not have the balls to address him or Wole soyinka this way.
Re: CNN-Isha Sesay: Disrespecful To Nigerian President by Musiwa13: 11:29pm On Nov 25, 2010
She only got piss off because Jonathan was not answering the question.  Jonathan could not explain himself very well. It may have to do with english .  I notice he lack  communication skill.

She may understand Jonathan because her parent are african, but white people may not understand what jonathan really mean by what he said. 

The thing is nigerian sometime dont know some of the things they say is pingin. I am not blaming Jonathan, but he need to watch what he is saying. May be that is what piss off the young lady.

The solution: You see Jonathan has to wait like 1 or 2 minute and think about the answer before he answer people. to have time to think about the answer.  That is the solution. And since he has a communication probem.   Or he trys a "yes" or "No" answer is better. That way , nobody knows he has communication problem .


Let me help him out on the issue of zoning.  The zonning issue is a decision of a cabal  in nigeria, who have held on to power for nearly 40 years. It is not a decision taken by the people of nigeria.

Even while I may say so. I have to make a note that it would affect nigeria, and violence would break out, because there is no way he would remain in power till 2019. The constitution allows Jonathan to stay in power till 2019. Which would mean the north would have not been in power since 1999 to 2019 but for just 2 years.


Another issue she fail to ask Jonathan is the satellite pictures.  Why she fail to ask sure a question.

technically , knowing nigeria, in a free and fair election non of the people running for election can win. I doubt if any of them can pick up to 30%  of the vote. 

I score her 80%

The OP is suffering from colo mentality, but the colonialism in question is internal colonialism.

You should see the likes of Jeremy Paxman and Steven Sackur interviewing the likes of Tony Blair, then you will know what a real interview is.

I have a Friend, that works at the BBC and he gives me to low down about that place and the news media industry since he is in the I.T Department, and he let me know that CNN,BBC flow with one another
behind the scenes


The higher up you go in the media ladder in the UK/USA the more
you are controlled and scripted on what you can and cannot say
and do also known as self-censorship.


Isha Sesay is just a "Highly visible" Patsy/Minion Period

What do you expect, she is a Cambridge Graduate, typical "
under-cover snob" and Jealous of Nigerians!

As for climbing the corporate ladder, thats just bullsh**t as she
had to lick some "Institutional Male  A.s.s" to get where she is today

You dont get where she is without  having to sale your soul

And for all those who think these Journalist are smart and Intelligent
that just a load of Bull.

The questions they ask is scripted for them by their "handlers" and
Isha Sesay is no exception.

And we should believe all these because your friend works in the I.T department at BBC? GTFO.

Come back when your friend actually has any presence in the media department.

it matters not if the questions are scripted; we care about the answers. Were Jonathan's answers scripted too?

It's a silly chauvinistic attitude to assume every woman on top slept her way to get there.

Shame to the poster,
if you watch the video properly you will see that all the questions shes been asking him he never answer them but make silly example with other countries,saying nigeria has 150 million people and the recources is not enough,
also she ask him about curruption and he was saying not nigeria alone has it but other western countries.until when nigerians will wake up from dreaming and destroy the pdp party,and form a new one that can lead us well by electing our choice leader,
anything that comes from pdp is evil,so how can evil give birth to a saint,you solve the math dude.

That is were Oga failed woefully. Also he should have been truthful about the challeneges that face the ruling party in terms of North South Divide. Practically telling people that doesnt exist, only for Atiku to be crowned The Northen candidate, smacks of one who doesnt understand how to answer questions.

I will score him 4/10

Re: CNN-Isha Sesay: Disrespecful To Nigerian President by Musiwa13: 3:10pm On Nov 26, 2010
Here is where the issue is. If you look at the situation in nigeria. Jonathan goodluck under the constitution may remain in power till 2019.

There is no way the north would get back power. The United nation just told you Kano population is  4 million . It is better for the north to wake up. And see that it has problem.

Now the north was in power for 40 years and they should not expect the south to just give them power that easy. The issue is 90% of southerners do not believe if power goes back to the north, that they north would give back power. So that is where we have problem.

And if the united nation is telling the north, kano population is 4 million. The north should look at its case very well. And look at its alternative. Like they have said. They have three choice.

1 remove the edo,delta yoruba , even bayelsa if possible into benin  republic to join fellow Yorubas over there.
2 Remove the 5 igbo south east states and cross to cameroon
3 To go to the united nation and ask for a seat for the north.

Look at it this way, the united nation has 2 option too.

1 Either the united nation want to declear bankruptcy, if nigeria goes into civil war which would affect the other part of africa.

2. Give nigeria an extra seat at the united nation for the north.

You can see the way the PDP is lossing governorship seat in yorubaland.  The reason is because they know what would happen if an election takes place, so they are trying to avoid been part of the voilent comes in 2011.  because they know I am telling you the truth. violent would come up in Nigeria. It is an issue of history and africa is not like the united state or europe.

People see thier ethnics group as thier country.  And that is the way they vote in election.
Africa is not like the united state. And the whole world needs to listen to our cry.

heck the west can do whatever to these African pot bellies without going through the media
everything is out there for their media researchers to latch anyway

So people like Jeremy Paxman, suckur and Jon snow get scripted questions from the 'top' undecided
